24×30 Sea Fan

The Black Sea Fan is an artistically preserved skeleton of a species of Cnidaria.  Though it closely resembles a plant, it is actually an animal that shares its phylum with coral and jellyfish.

Sea fans consume their food through a process called filter feeding, in which the animal fans out and uses the movement of currents to give its many polyp colonies optimal exposure to unsuspecting prey.
